It is becoming widely accepted that the levels of traditional cleaning required to maintain Health & Safety quality needs is unsustainable in today’s manufacturing.
Automotive manufacturing is under pressure from several fronts, increased production, automation, Industry 4.0/4IR and EV. Demand for technical cleanliness and elimination of airborne dust renders traditional cleaning as costly, only effective whilst it is being done and regarded as “shutting the gate after the horse has bolted”.
The answer is to stop dirt coming in in the first place.
80% of contamination (dirt, debris and moisture) is carried in on tyre wheels and shoes. Strategically placing matting that removes (and more importantly retains) dirt, debris and moisture throughout your building immediately removes the reliance on ineffective traditional cleaning.
With it comes consequential benefits such as reduced risk of slip - both pedestrian and forklift.
Some matting can also be retrofitted to accommodate automated guided vehicles (AGVs) allowing for next-generation growth without substantial re-investment.
